they're talking about. >> ironically president obama, a constitutional scholar and scalia are in the same place on this issue. yes, you have the right, but not without responsibilities. okay. dr. peterson -- >> yes. >> i don't know if it gets more bizarre than this. i feel like every day there's a new bizarre from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns.
break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we will have another budget fiscal fight ahead but instead of it being over the debt ceiling, which a default would have been cataclysmic for the government or a government shutdown, this is an ability to be over the terrain of the budget process, normal give and take between the house, the senate, the white house coming in. and a probably more functional way to reduce spending and also get the fiscal house in order rather than having it attached to the debt ceiling fight. >> thank you very much, mark. see you in d.c. for the inauguration. and have a great weekend, buddy. >> you, too. >>> up next from manti te'o's high hopes to lance armstrong admitting he's lied to us for years, should the scandals mat tore the men and women in washington? why they say d.c. lawmakers should be concerned about those two stories. at 1:45, the a
to the rescue. he has a bill to reverse all of president obama's executive actions. talking points memo obtained senator paul's proposal. there is no mention of a single order in violation of the constitution. not one. maybe these righties just don't know enough about the constitution. perhaps there is someone who could help them out. let's try former bush attorney general michael mukasey. >> it seems to be by definition an abuse of power, a power grab, if you will. no? >> it is -- politically it is a power grab, yes. >> politically is it then unconstitutional in some instances? >> i don't think it's unconstitutional in the sense that i don't think it's something you that could get a court to find unconstitutional. >> uh-oh. it's not the answer hannity was looking for. maybe he should try asking it in a different way. >> so did you think that obama care was unconstitutional? >> did i? >> did you agree with the majority opinion? >> the supreme court said it was unconstitutional. >> you did? >> so you agree with john roberts? >> yes. >> you did. i'm surprised. because in that case -- so through th
christie blasts the nra over the web ad featuring the obama daughters. >> to talk about the president's children or any public officer's children who have not by their own choice but by requirement to have protection and to use that somehow to try to make a political point, i think is rep rehencible. >> ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. >> government is not the solution to our problem. >> government is the problem. >> as times change, so government must change. we need a new government for a new century. >> my most solemn duty is to protect this nation and its people from further attacks and emerging threats. >> on this day we come to require an end to the petty grievances and worn-out dogmas that have strangled or politics for far too long. >> ready for round two. the white house unveils the president's new official portrait, but he and congress face a public deeply pessimistic view about whether they can get the economy moving again. >>> first lady michelle obama celebrating her 49th birthday with dinner out shows off a new haircut. bang
, the poll also said that we're talking about obama before the show that the majority of americans believe what's hindering economic growth is the fact that washington continually finds itself at an impasse or a position around how to resolve what seem to be to me and i think a lot of americans commonsense balanced solutions that should be put forward. without that, all of this, i don't think, comes to fruition. >> let me say one thing before we go. michael, if, in fact, the ofa infrastructure does work, does that not then -- does that not mean now all future presidencies will have -- >> the eternal campaign. to some extent, you do already, but this will rachet up one notch. >> it's also -- the political parties have disintegrated in terms of power. the republican side, everything is -- >> understatements. >> i know. the tea party groups, the stuff, those are now the epicenters of the political power right now. it's not the rnc. what organize for action is going to do is take look the dnc's traditional power structure and remove it. >> if we are constant campaigning from now to eternity, s
talking about how president obama has successfully been neutering republican members of the house. again, from your insiders' perspective, is that you guys talk about in secret meetings? how to neuter those on the right? >> look, i don't think it's possible to neuter the right. so i don't think that's the goal. look, i will say because i want to touch on something you were just talking about. in that this is not -- if i were advising the republicans, i would say this is not about tactics or poll tested talking points. this is about what is your agenda? do you support equal pay for women? do you support comprehensive immigration reform? so it's -- i think within the democratic party, it's hard to understand why they keep having meetings about their tactics when really they need to take a look at how they're not identifying with or relating to the demographics of the country. >> hey, thomas, can i say real quick to jen on that point. you're absolutely right. and if you disagree with the things that jen just outlined there as is part of the republican talking point if you will, tell us why,
wing talk laura said a total pro-obama propaganda. labor forced participation rate at a 30-year low. secretary, let's make some news tonight before you leave. >> you know what, i have no idea what those folks are talking about. i've said it before and i'll say it again. those accusations are ludicrous. the people are very competent, scientific people. they've been working on this for years. we vnt changed any methodology. it remains the same. and i salute those employees that work at the bls because they are premier federal employees. numbers don't lie. they said it couldn't be done and this president put back 5.8 million in growth reform. we see growth in construction, man ewe factturing, tourism and even the retail industry. numbers doechbt lie. all i do is report what the bureau of labor statistics gives me. >>> one of the things i've noticed about you, you never seem to let them get you down? how do you maintain this balance? >> i've been very fortunate that my parents raised me in the matter that they did. when people try to throw you off, you pick yourself up, you dust yoursel
photographer pete suza. >>> another new picture everybody's talking about, michelle obama with her new hairdo. bangs. she got the new cut just in time for her birthday dinner last night. she and the president dined with friends at cafe milano in georgetown. >>> and a big red bus is touring washington, d.c. with wax figures of the obamas. even the fake figures got spruced up for the inauguration. see, they added a little more gray hair to the president. the wax figures were created by madame tussaud's. >>> are you ready for this, $294 million, zillow calculated the value with an algarhythm. the design, $294 million. >>> and if you read only one thing this morning, if you're looking for a place to go for a special occasion, my must-read is for you. aaa is out with its list of the best of the best. the restaurants all across the country that have been awarded the coveted five-diamond rating, including four new ones. i'd love to hear if you've eaten at any of them. if you think they deserve that ranking, it's up on our facebook page at facebook/jansingco. joplin, missouri, come back from a devast
news, join me around the electronic water cooler where we talk about an event from earlier. week. president obama with school children standing behind him signed an executive order meant to curb gun violence. nice scene. some conservative pundits and their lead eer stephen come betr not impressed. >> obama knew his gun grab was going to pass the smell test, so he stooped to surround himself with children. like this confused boy joey. he loves trains. folks, it was a transparent appeal to our humanity. luckily, rush limbaugh doesn't have any. >> obama uses kids as human shields. he brings these kids supposedly who wrote letters to the white house after newtown, bring them up there to present a picture of support among the children. you got these little kids there. they don't want to die. [ crying noises ] how can you not listen to them? >> you are being manipulated, america. >> o oh, boo-hoo. i want to the go to disney land. i want a pony. i want to live to see another day. grow up. oh, i want to grow up. >> all right. still ahead on "way too early," we ask the famous question, wh
and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo
. right. >> in these mass shootings. he didn't address, talk about the parental issues and things. we got the inaugural coming up. big look at the second term. we asked in our poll, give us a word or phrase to this advice to president obama and congress. what do you want? what is the message you'd like to send to president obama? number one fix the economy, create jobs. first two were that and the message to congress was almost unanimous. compromise together. >> yes. >> so we know where the public is. >> right. the public wants results and they want results in their jobs, in their lives. they want the government just to work better. and i think that is the big disconnect right now with washington because, you know, republicans are wondering how much leverage they have to force the president to deal with spending, for instance. do they sort of wait him out and hope for a positive result in 2014 and use whatever leverage over the del ceiling or whatever else but the public finds it so distasteful. the president too on issues like entitlement, i think it's really striking, will he seek to ri
, that there is so little trust that they feel that obama is bent on really achieving conquest over the republicans by the midterms, trying to isolate tea party republicans and not really coming to too much of a deal. you hear the president talk about, well, he'd be willing to make some modifications to the medicare program. i mean, he certainly is not willing to get into a negotiation over that because he thinks it's going to be one-sided. so can just underlines how far apart they are when it comes to any sort of big deal. and the more people i talk to around the hill, people who know the president, that we might be looking at much smaller deals to try to chip away at some of these issues rather than this concept of a grand bargain. >> chuck, we've gotten the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. horrible numbers for congress overall and pretty bad numbers for the republican brand. yet paul ryan yesterday coming out and as a leader sort of talking about we may need to be more accepting of the fact that we only control the house. we don't have the white house or the senate. can republicans do an
